April in Hamburg!

Another April weekend that I spent in Hamburg :)! It’s always a treat to stay in my home city the whole week. Put don’t worry, next week I am on the road (train rails) again… Those last days I helped a friend moving from the Schanze into her new flat in Altona (which is stunning & BIG!), celebrated a 30s birthday (so young!), went into the cinema (to watch this amazing film) and shopped some (only 1 kg) barbells at the Jungfernstieg – with the plan to enhance my fitness a bit :D. Now I am ready to face Monday.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Stay fit and healthy!

Spring Fever (or: Hay Fever)!

Hamburg is in full bloom right now, but I spent most of the weekend insight to save myself from those hay fever attacks. Nevertheless, I made an interesting trip to Finkenwerder on Friday, visited a Klezmer concert on Saturday and had a hearty breakfast Sunday morning. Now let’s hope for some more sunny (& pollen-free) spring days.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Enjoy the spring sun!

WE2The trees are in full bloom now (achoo!).

WE4Saturday night I listened to the Amsterdam Klezmer Band at the Fabrik in Hamburg-Altona.

WE3Sunday morning: Delicious breakfast at the café Salon Wechsel Dich!

Hello Spring!

Just some roses I made myself a gift :). All pics by Franzi.

Yesterday, spring officially started. My mum visited Hamburg this weekend and we were having dinner in the delicious restaurant Sweet Virginia.  I was two times in the theater those last few days and enjoyed my leisure time with reading, listening to 1990s music and my friends.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh Easter week. Have a happy one!

HH6The Alster Swans are back!!! Those little white spots were the first I saw this year.

HH1In the Schauspielhaus I saw two pieces this weekend: On Friday Die Physiker and Sunday Joachim Meyerhoff’s Ach diese Lücke, diese entsetzliche Lücke.

HH3Friday I sat closer at the stage than ever before.

I am back from my winter vacations since a week now. Those few days in the mountains each year feel always incredible refreshing – the light, the air and the activity. Here are some impressions of our winter vacations in Saalbach-Hinterklemm.

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Have a relaxing one!

A Rainy Hamburg Weekend!

It was a rainy Hamburg weekend, but I enjoyed the free time… shopping and a Sunday morning brunch included. It was relaxing! Anyway, a rainy Hamburg also has its distinct charm :).

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Have a sunny one!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Stay relaxed and eat well!

The Fourth Advent Weekend!

The fourth candle is lit and X-Mas is already in front of our doors. I will be off to Berlin on Wednesday. This weekend I enjoyed again my new hometown Hamburg. But is it still new? I am already one year here. Can you believe it? Now I need to wrap the last presents and pack my bags for X-Mas.

I wish you a wonderful start into the final X-Mas week. Stay relaxed!

November in Berlin!

A weekend in Berlin is always tightly scheduled… Friday the PhD defence of my little bro was the main thing to celebrate. Saturday and Sunday I spent again with friends and family spread through the big city. There was sun and snow and fun and cheese cake and potato salad and lasagna! A wonderful time!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Have a unique one!

A November Weekend in Hamburg!

HH4The Isebekkanal. All pics by Franzi.

The last days were as grey in Hamburg as one would expect it in November. Friday night I watched the soccer game in Paris… Those things that happened there were like the worst nightmare and I am shocked and sad. My thoughts are with the victims, their friends and families.

Nevertheless, there were also some bright moments on Saturday and Sunday: I went to a reading with the inspiring Miranda July and discovered the nice coffee bar Milch, near the Landungsbrücken. Now let’s look ahead to what the new week is offering us!

I wish you a wonderful start into the fresh week. Have a peaceful one!
